Final Report - PACHELBEL (Policy addressing climate change and learning about consumer behavior and everyday life)

Project ID: 244024
Funded under: FP7-ENVIRONMENT

Abstract

This is the final report for the PACHELBEL project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). Project PACHELBEL set out to find ways of supporting policymaking for sustainability in ways that go beyond the notion of simply educating consumers. The report reveals that the research team had identified a gap in the resources available to support policy-making for sustainability. Specifically, there was a need to understand the mismatch that can occur between the responses that people typically give to surveys about their environmental views, and what they actually do in terms of consumer behaviour in their everyday lives. There was a need to make such everyday behaviours visible to policymakers. Towards this end, the project has developed a policymaking support tool (STAVE) which links two social worlds: the sphere of policymaking and the sphere of citizens' everyday consumption practices. This tool is further elucidated in the report.
